Granite® Impression protects Polish church: Authentic look and cost-efficient solution

ArcelorMittal's prepainted steel Granite® Impression - Brown Agate was chosen as the material for the new roof of a fieldstone church in Poland. Its authentic look and excellent resistance provide the perfect combination for the aesthetic and functional requirements of this roof renovation project.

Detailed information

Due to its advanced state of deterioration, the roof of the St. Bartholomew catholic church in the Polish town of Troszyn was replaced with a steel roof using roofing profiles made of prepainted steel produced by ArcelorMittal Europe - Flat Products.

The local Polish company Kurp-Dach, a fabricator of steel roofs and long-time ArcelorMittal customer, chose ArcelorMittal's prepainted steel Granite® Impression - Brown Agate for this project as it fulfilled the aesthetic as well as the functional requirements and constituted a very cost-efficient alternative in comparison to clay tiles or copper, for example.

With its brownish-red shade, Granite® Impression in its variation Brown Agate features polished patterns with the impression of iron oxide inlays and imitates the surface of copper, but at a lower cost.

The Granite® Impression product line is unique in its aesthetic characteristics on the European market.

For the renovation of this church roof, ArcelorMittal supplied Kurp-dach with Granite® Impression - Brown Agate prepainted steel in two different steel grades and dimensions:  S250 Z275 in coils of 0.6 x 1250 mm and S320 Z275 with 0.7 x 1222 mm.
